|Students must be 15 years old by Day 1|
OVERALL COURSE OBJECTIVE:
SUPTFC-TX is designed to provide CAP Cadets with a realistic view of USAF SUPT. In one week’s time the CAP cadet will experience as much of what a prospective USAF pilot candidate experiences in 52 weeks of training.
This course is not a base tour. However (time permitting),
we will attempt to tour other facilities, teach a little bit about Air Force life, and allow the cadets to meet with other career fields to discuss future possibilities.
Some of the key subject areas are as follows;
Simulator and flight training is dependent on availability
and USAF Student Pilot training timeline.
Academics are taught by SUPTFC staff. Hands-on training involves attending actual classes (mostly Aerospace Physiology classes)
being taught to USAFSUPT students and either actually
performing some of the training (if feasible) or observing the training.
The schedule is built around availability
of simulators, aircraft, USAF Academics, and the flightline schedule.
Classroom academics/tests, visits to other base facilities are planned around
the USAF scheduled activities. In general, the day starts about 7 am and ends around 10 pm. However, flight line show times may change this earlier or later.
A typical schedule is as follows;
Saturday (DAY 1) – Travel, assemble/in-process, check-in to billeting, initial briefing.
Sunday (DAY 2) – SUPTFC Staff taught Academics
Monday AM (DAY 3) – Formal welcome brief from Wing representative, mission briefs, safety briefs, pictures, flight physicals, misc
Monday PM (DAY 3) – Thursday (Day 6)
USAF Academics, SUPTFC Academics, Flight line, Simulators, aircraft sorties, visits to base facilities.
Friday AM (DAY 7) – End of course test/critique
Friday PM (DAY 7) – Course completion activity
